Local medical centers, health departments, foundations, United Ways and other health and human services providers have partnered to create Piedmont Health Counts, an online database focused on health and other social issues in Guilford and Alamance counties.
The data hub is part of a national initiative, known as Healthy People 2020, that includes targets for preventing disease, promoting health and aims to help communities assess their health status and build an agenda for community health improvement.
Piedmont Health Counts, at piedmonthealthcounts.org, includes dashboards tracking community health and disparities; data on demographics and “socio-needs;” and comparisons of current data to future targets.
It also tracks health priorities and local reports for Guilford and Alamance counties and provides other tools and resources.
